SUGAR LAND (September 4, 2007) – Members of local media recently went head-to

was awarded to Sugar Land Sun Editor John Pape, who raced for the Pink Ribbons
Project and the third-place winner was David Lyons, publisher of the Fort Bend Herald
and Texas Coaster, who raced on behalf of Boy Scouts of America.
       Also participating were Casanova Nurse of KHCW-TV, Elizabeth Lee of KHCW-
TV, Kathy Williams of KRIV-TV and Chris May of the Houston Chronicle. Nurse, Lee,
Williams and May represented AIDS Foundation Houston, The Lupus Foundation, The
Fort Bend County Women’s Center and the Readers are Leaders Foundation,
respectively.
       “Over the past few years, Town Square has grown to become the central
business district for the Sugar Land and Fort Bend areas. This office building will help
meet the demand for those professionals who are looking to open their businesses here,”
said Les Newton, president of PCD. “I am excited we were able to use this achievement
to benefit the community and would like to thank all the participants for making it a
success.”
